Uranium Mining & Nuclear Power

Uranium Mining & Nuclear Power

VIC
Sep 08

Recent government decisions have encouraged increases in environmentally responsible uranium mining. However, with policy responses to climate change in full swing, our national strategy explicitly excludes nuclear power. This sets Australia apart from many other developed economies, and runs counter to the trend of increasing global nuclear electricity generation.
